A man who tried and failed to break into a Lexington bank with a flower pot is being sought by police.
Lt. Clay Combs said the man broke the glass front door with the flower pot, but he couldn't get through a second, interior door of the Peoples Exchange Bank at 901 Richmond Road.
The man then ran off, Combs said.
According to a news release from Lexington police, the would-be robber was described as a black man with a slender build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and a black bandanna over his face.
"He jumped the fence to the rear of the bank, and we've been circulating and looking for him, and nobody has located him yet," Combs said.
Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect's identity or location to call the police at (859) 258-3600 or Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at (859) 253-2020.
